Year 1 had lots of fun this afternoon as they investigated which material made the best ear defenders. We have been learning about our senses and today we were learning more about how our ears work. We were keen to know how we could protect our hearing in noisy situations.
The children suggested a range of materials which they thought would reduce loud noises. They then decided to use these materials to cover their ears when they heard a loud noise. We listened carefully to the sound of a drill and used each material to cover our ears. We then recorded our observations.
Can you guess which material made the best ear defenders?p
